Description

When Jim Davis began producing records at Verve, he changed the company's recording philosophy toward its most prolific instrumentalist. Where Norman Granz had produced countless Oscar Peterson albums devoted to the popular song, Davis was more interested in making albums that were closer to what the Peterson trio sounded like live. His first Peterson recordings were the legendary London House Sessions.

At the time of this album, there had been no personnel changes in the trio for five years - so it's no surprise that the relationship between the musicians here is telepathic. (Ray Brown and Ed Thigpen's "section" rehearsals, in which they perfected countless rhythmic patterns, were legendary by 1964.) The album has a farewell feel, though - it was Peterson's last in a fourteen-year collaboration with Verve.
